  1. That's so neat.

    They should install it as a sculpture somewhere for people and tourists
    – as a historical reminder of 'what not to do'.

  2. What a waste of technology, time and money for a piece of trash when
    there r so many more important issues the efforts could have been used
    for.

  3. The US gave lots of stuff to Russia to help defeat the Germans. Now it looks like the Germans are gonna take another whack at the Bear. If they do, they're gonna get their ass kicked again….
